I don't think you'll find them for any less. I think they usually run about $435 and up depending on size...

You get what you pay for. You'll be able to tailor your backspacing and you get a true billet wheel. The quality of the raw matierials in my opinion is first rate. I think most guys on this forum that bought Budniks will agree.

No doubt, the guys at Budnik are awesome. I am due to get my Hammers (the newest wheel, inserts are brushed, polished soft lip rim) next week or so. They helped with size, brake template from Baer and bs. The sky is the limit wiht options but price too. 540 EACH. Not a fun nut but what looks better than wheels?

Oh Phoenix, that what the direct price. You could try Detroit Speed or even discount tire and see what discount they get. The team (Jon) at Budnik will still help you.

Have you looked at Billet Specialty wheels?

They have a wheel that looks almost identical, and they're usually cheaper.

I have looked at Billet Specialties, Vintec or Vintec Dish, they all seem to be about the same number.

Did you actually price them at a dealer?

You should be able to get them way cheaper then whats listed on their website.
